The fans are quite excited about the release of Invasion Episode 4 after watching the previous episodes. We say episodes because the series premiered with the first three episodes of the season altogether at once. However, this type of release pattern is not new and has been followed recently by several other shows as well. Although, it has proved to be successful since it gets the audience hooked to the show if they like the first few episodes, and then they wait for the upcoming episodes eagerly.
The latest American television series follows the genre of science fiction, which has a huge fanbase all around the world. In addition to that, the concept of aliens or outer space beings invading our planet has always got the viewers curious. That is also one of the reasons this show can be successful. However, the start has been rather average when it comes to the growth of the show and its success. The show currently has an average rating of 5.8 out of 10 on IMDB. Meanwhile, it has a score of only thirty-six percent from the critics on Rotten Tomatoes.
Although it is important to note that these are just figures from the reviews of a very small audience as compared to the viewers all around the world. Therefore, it is too early to judge the show as of now. The popular British filmmaker named Simon Kinberg has created the show along with David Well. Furthermore, they both are the executive producers on the show as well along with the others. Now before we get on to discuss the release of Invasion Episode 4, let us first take a recap of the first three episodes of the show.
